This was probably our best cruise ever.

This ship is beautiful and we so enjoyed times of relaxation and renewing while we were sailing. This ship has the unique feature of having the most well balanced engine of any ship we have been on. With the calm seas, we often had to look outside to really see if we were still moving. There seemed to be absolutely no vibration what so ever when we were underway. And like we are trying to say with this picture, we wish our vacation could simply go on for ever.

Cabin / Stateroom
This was awesome...it was a quiet room with a very private balcony. We would love this room again. And Dawn, our room steward was absolutely fabulous
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We never had such a long drawn out embarkation process. This is one area that could be improved but I think it was all due to a glitch in the IT computer connectivity.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
We had confusion and ordered the e-visa but there was not enough guidance to obtain the correct visa...that would be very much appreciated in the future to get the right info well in advance because we were not allowed to get off the ship in India. With such restrictions in the future...it may be better to select an alternate port of call. Everyone seemed quite disappointed by India.
Onboard Activities
I loved the flow rider and the gym and soaking in the hot tub
We love live performances and wished we could have seen more dancing routines... The Ice show was the most splendid of all we have ever seen and the musicians were outstanding....
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
This ship was the first one that was most accommodating for Allison's special dietary requests, even making special accommodations by allowing her to choose her selection the night before... We did run out of some good fruits simply because of the time of year in Asia...
Dubai, U.A.E.
A very expensive place.
Mormugao (Goa), India
Very dirty ... The visa situation in India was terrible and the immigration pre-screening process was atrocious.
Cochin, India
Give India a miss in the future..
Penang (Pulau Pinang), Malaysia
Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia
The ride to town was terribly long at over an hour at high speeds. We used a taxi and shared with our friends and the taxi was willing to stay for us and brought us back. But there were a few times we were praying because this particular taxi driver was not the most alert and his car was not very safe.
Disembarkation was so very smooth.
